this week. mr. romney speaking to the hispanic chamber of commerce. the president on univision. everybody agrees they need 38% of the latino vote. right now the president is up two to one among latinos. continuing with kristine pelosi and jackie gingrich cushman and senator evan bayh. can the republican candidate overcome his own harsh, very harsh antiimmigration rhetoric during the primary season and draconian language that broke no compromise, no compassion at all for the undocumented? >> i think it really is a problem for mitt romney but a bigger problem for conservatives and republicans in the future. the demographic wave of hispanics that has hit america is something that is going to be continuing and if conservatives cannot reach out and win hispanic support they are going to be a permanent minority. so mitt romney has got to get serious about this. i think the best way to do that is to talk about legal immigration reform. because the fact is illegal immigration is now down to a 40 year low. and we he could solve illegal immigration if we would simplyn legally, people that we need w

. also joining us, the former u.s. secretary of commerce, carlos gutierrez, who co-chairs mitt romney's hispanic steering committee. gentlemen, thanks very much for joining us. mayor villaraigosa, i will start with you. the president participating in a discussion today in the spanish language network univision, was pressed pretty hard by the anchor, jorge ramos on why he didn't achieve comprehensive immigration reform in his first term. i want to play a little clip of that exchange and let you respond. listen to this. >> translator: may 28th, 2008, we had a conversation in denver, colorado. you told me the following, and i want to quote you. what i can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that i strongly support. >> i confess i did not expect and so i'm happy to take responsibility for being naive here, is that republicans who had previously supported comprehensive immigration reform, my opponent in 2008, who had been a champion of it, and who attended these meetings, suddenly would walk away. that's what i did not anticipate. >> mr. mayor, we know the
to do with rising gas prices than anything else, really. the commerce department reports americans' spending rose by .5% in august. that's the biggest take out gas prices which went up 50 cents a gallon in july and august. spending rose but .1% last month so there you have it. american incomes rose only 1.1% in august. the worse month since november. the head of the united states postal service says the agency will indeed miss its second multibillion-dollar payment in as many months. the postal service owes the u.s. treasury $5.6 billion for future retiree health benefits and that bill is due on sunday. the post master general says the agency has already cut back as much as it possibly can. and get this, he says if congress passes some sort of reform the postal service could turn a profit. any postal legislation could get pushed into the next congress rich edson in our washington newsroom. what's the hold up here. >> as you mentioned for starters congress is out of town. when lawmakers return their top issue is solving hundreds of billions of dollars in automatic tax increases and
's 20 years ago. 20 years ago. last year, just last year the u.s. chamber of commerce, 20 years later, came out with another study. this is the u.s. chamber of commerce. this is not the social scientists. these are hardheaded business people. what did they say in the u.s. chamber of commerce report? we've got to put more money spew preschoo -- moremoney into pres. well, we at the federal level have been doing that through a program called head start, and we've had head start, i think if i'm not mistaken, since about 1968. high-quality early childhood education has been proven to save taxpayer dollars in the long run by reducing the costs for welfare, special education, and, might i add, criminal justice. read that -- jail time. one of the highest correlative -- in fact, if i'm not mistaken, the highest correlative factor for people who are incarcerated in our prisons is the lack of a high school education. urn the romney-ryan budget, up to 200,000 low-income children and their families could lose access to head start, again, in fiscal year 2014. i'm not talking about over the next ten
.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. the president has not just a commanding lead with latino voters but winning three out of four of the female vote along latinos. romney's problems begin with immigration but they don't end there, do they? >> no. he also doesn't talk about health care. when you talk about small business, small business purveyors are among them are latinos. when he spoke to the chamber and said he didn't believe in health care and the dream act and he went down the line. small business are the ones that are going to be taking advantage of a lot of the health care that obama was able to champion earlier. but then he also has this whole issue of immigration. he talked about dreamers but he talked about the dreamers as if only they should be eligible only if they're serving in the military. a large portion of folks believe that kids that are valedictorians should get a shot at the american dream. his etch-a-sketch plan is not working. >> to this point, steve, i'd like you to listen to an answer he gave mitt romney on immigration when asked about it in his telemundo interview. liste
event, a speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce in california. that was it. on tuesday, his two events were both fund-raisers. they were closed to the public and those were in the great swing state of utah, followed by the great swing state of texas. okay, this is not what it looks like to campaign for president. these are not swing states. republican senator lindsey graham told reporters of mitt romney today, "he's a great guy, he should win this election, but being in utah is necessary to raise money, but he doesn't have to be there, in my view." senator graham continued, "i think what romney needs to do is get into virginia and run for sheriff. this is not rocket science." real clear politics covered mr. romney's mysteriously light schedule yesterday. they quoted a well-connected republican fund-raiser saying, "there's not really a campaign here. he's getting ready for the debates and he's out fund-raising. you've got enough money." real clear politics also notes that in the 19 days following the conclusion of the republican convention, mr. romney spent only 9 of those 19 day
, saying no to the civil rights bill. it doesn't work there for interstate commerce. i don't know which way roberts would go on a similar question. those issues are close right now. >> it's complicated. one of the cases that could be considered is the voting rights act. that could be overturned. obviously affirmative action is going to be on the docket. that's a very complicated issue but it works both ways. there's a high chance this court will hear an appeal to doma. it could be the first court that establishes some progress sift with respect to gay rights. it could make a historic court even though the politics would suggest otherwise. it works both ways and it will be curious to see not only which cases they pick up in what manner and how the arguments play out because doma could come up and so could prop 8 which is a different section of the gay rights debate. i'm curious to see how it plays out. i'm assuming jeff will be on top of it. >> jeff is on top of it right now. a lot of people who watch this show are pro choice, some not, but many are. how would roe v. wade be taken down. what

[ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real oppor
for growth. we will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. >> >>. >> mere moments after taking office, president obama told the hard truth truth and got right down to business. before we talk about the president's work, let's remember that before he was able to take the oath of office, candidate obama had to do a lot of work to get to the podium. we know the story of the young state senator who wowed us at the 2004 dnc and on 2008 took on one of america's best oiled political machines, inspired a generation, a generation. the timeline to success has many notable moments in between, rarely do we mark august 2005 as a turning point for the working senator. when the force of hurricane katrina devastated the poorly maintained levees around new orleans, those floodwaters brought with them devastation for those in their wake and a wakeup call to the nation. our fellow americans watched in horror as our government fumbled and failed to alleviate human suffering right in this country. in the midst of the crisis, we asked how an
chamber of commerce. what is the message, good morning. >> apart from just jobs and the economy and it's laser like focus that the romney campaign has had in recent months. they are making the argument that there is so much upheaval around the world and domestically as well that the framework of the election needs to change from jobs and the economy to a change of president on all fronts. the romney campaign saying that president obama amounts to a status quo reee hreb. i re-election. if change matters to the american people they should vote for mitt romney. romney will point out that president obama promised to make immigration reform a priority and he will suggest that that is yet another example of a broken obama promise. mr. romney will also go on and detail a little bit about how he would reform immigration law and the hispanic vote is obviously incredibly important not only in california but across the country. mr. romney trails by a 3% margin. in that regard mr. romney is off the pace. it's generally accepted that a republican needs to get well over the mid 30s in order to be tr
commerce comes across the pacific ocean the u.s. wants to make sure that our allies are protected and our interests are protected here in the pacific, and some people, jaime say this is the biggest build up if not larger than what we saw back in world war ii. jaime. jamie: big story. thanks, adam. jon: there are new questions about the investigation into the attack on our consulate in libya. four americans killed, including two former navy seals. so what are we learning about their deaths? fox news talks with a navy seal who served overseas with both of those heros. nsulin, so i test... a lot. do you test with this? freestyle lite test strips? i don't see... beep! wow! that didn't ta much blood. yeah, and the unique zipwik tab targets the blood and pulls it in. so easy. yep. freestyle lite needs just a third the blood of onetouch ultra. really? so testing is one less thing i have to worry about today. great. call or click today and get strips and a meter free. test easy. this is a test. this is a test.
that just yesterday by going to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, and he did get an overwhelmingly a good response from them. stuart: we hear you, jennifer. governor romney is making progress and chipping away at president obama's leadership amongst hispanics. we appreciate you being with us. thank you jennifer. >> thank you very much, have a good day. stuart: you need to raise a point about what romney also said in that release. charles: part of the tape, he sort of mentioned his family having lived in mexico if he had been born of mexican parents running for president would be a lot easier. stuart: that's what he said? charles: spin will be put on it obviously. here's a guy who was born with with silver spoon not understanding the plight of hispanics or whatever. stuart: okay. next new evidence in the case of the interim mayor of costa mesa california who battled the police union and then was falsely accused of drunk driving. a union defender will respond to a l.a. time's report that backs up the mayor's claims. will he change his tune this time? >> show me the cases where that h

testify before the commerce committee to give us the benefit of their immense experience, neil armstrong and gene cernan were able to do it. their testimony in may of 2010 helped us craft the nasa reauthorization act of 2010 in which we managed to pass a balanced plan that prioritized nasa's development of future exploration beyond low-earth orbit while putting significant resources into commercial development of crew vehicles to the space station. we passed it unanimously in the united states senate, very bipartisan, and we passed it on neil armstrong's birth tai. -- birthday, august 5, 2010. when the space shuttle was retired, some thought the space program was ended. you know, i took a group of cub scouts actually to johnson space center in houston just a few months ago. they have a great program for our scouts -- well, for any group that actually wants to go and spend the night at the visitors center and they get to tour nasa and hear about the great feats of our country in space. and one of the little boyce said to our nasa administrator -- and one of the little boys said to our nas
people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th
interest in commerce, freedom of navigation and it's just good for the united states to get back in the pacific and we are going to be a part of it. >> let me ask you a couple of follow-up questions and then open up to the audience. you mentioned mega cities and work going on here about long range trends that shows that the urbanization trends that we have seen to date are going to accelerate, 60% of the world's population by 2030 and so it seems like the marines are particularly useful in urban warfare settings. what i'm seeing in these trends, future of the world is going to be in cities, for good, ill or other. how do you sort of -- paying attention on the long range trends and getting marines ready for urban warfare and paying attention to the training priorities i'm sure you are focused on. >> if you look at the population growth and we talked about the 15 to 20 mega cities, over 75% of the world's largest cities are within about 62 miles of the coastline. if you map that around the world, all around europe and asia to include our country and europe, you would see the bulk o

with leaders from the chamber of commerce and other business leaders and what they told me, these are their words, not mine -- they are sick and tired of hearing politicians take credit for saving jobs throughout the state of ohio and especially politicians from washington. they believe it's the ingenuity and hard work of men and women with small business owners and small manufacturers here in the state of ohio. that's where the credit is due. >> steve: he's running for state (i understand it's really tight. good luck. >> thank you. >> steve: so ohio is doing well. but one of the worst hit cities, janesville, wisconsin, where paul ryan grew up, what does that tell us about him? the film maker who went out to find out coming up next. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing a stunning work of technology. introducing the entirely new lexus es. and the first-ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. and the first-ever es hybrid. seems they haven't been moving much lately. but things are starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help

on the energy commerce committee, so i agree. i can see how energy regulation can be hurtful to job creation. there is no question we need to deregulate. do we keep the american people safe? of course we want to do that. but how do we battle this in a way that grows the economy? that can be done. the administration over the last four years has tried to artifically tried to move the market through mechanisms that have not been on track with true market conditions. i think energy is the prime example of that. i come from a very expensive energy state, california. very expensive state all together. many would say the legislature in california doesn't do a whole lot of things right. but i'm fearing that washington has been going more or less sacramento would be a huge mistake. 435 members of the house of representatives and the members of the senate, we can do it all and we should do it all. >> i think the markets the american people need confidence. i think changes need to be made that will grow the economy. i think romney represents a pro-growth economy. if you don't get that confidence out of
